The Icelandic Sagas by W. A. Craigie

Originally published during the early part of the twentieth century, the Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature were designed to provide concise introductions to a broad range of topics. They were written by experts for the general reader and combined a comprehensive approach to knowledge with an emphasis on accessibility. W. A. Craigie's book The Icelandic Sagas was first published in 1913. It offers a critical examination of the origins, characteristics and types of sagas, while also considering the circumstances that fostered such an outpouring of literature in Iceland during the Middle Ages.

Thankfully this is super cheap since it's the author discussing various sagas (this one spans 1400 pages, this a small handful, etc) rather than containing the actual sagas.
